Seguin’s pole vaulting recognized
The University of Guelph honoured South Glengarry’s Brennan Seguin as co- winner of the Gryphons track and field team Rookie of the Year award.
The national (U-Sports) pole vault gold medallist won the event, clearing 5 metres – the only competitor in the field to do so.
Seguin shared his rookie award with Matthew MacNeill, a 60 m hurdler and long jumper.
A graduate of Char-Lan DHS who trained under local coach Rory Blackadder, Seguin is in just his first year as a studentathlete at Guelph, where he is studying sociology.
He’s planning to compete in a number of meets outside of the university sphere this summer, including the Canadian Track and Field Championships, scheduled for July 25-28, in Ottawa.
